FIRST RACE: 1. Tiz Jolie, 2. Empowering Force. 3. Litigation Road. LONG SHOT: Afleet in Time.
SECOND RACE: 1. Grammy Times Six, 2. Belle of the Fleet, 3. Warren’s Dixi Bell. LONG SHOT: Quay Factor.
THIRD RACE: 1. Twinkle Toes, 2. Powerful Girl, 3. Zippinaroundtown. LONG SHOT: So Golden.
FOURTH RACE: 1. Rprettyboyfloyd, 2. Sammy Mandeville, 3. Thesheetsguy. LONG SHOT: Motown Men.
FIFTH RACE: 1. Temple Keys (best bet), 2. Jens de Ville, 3. McHeat. LONG SHOT: Upbeat Tempo.
We’ve always liked this colt, TEMPLE KEYS (4-1), all along and his sire, Temple City. The 3-year-old pressed the pace last time against open maiden and drops in with Cal-breds here. Also Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith takes the mount.
SIXTH RACE: 1. Global Stage, 2. Persuasive Paul, 3. Carlot Cowboy. LONG SHOT: Muchos Besos.
SEVENTH RACE: 1. Skylander, 2. Guggenheim 3. Corinthian’s Song. LONG SHOT: Bernster.
This 5-year-old just missed in his debut down the hill and the winner came back to take another race. Mike Smith stays aboard for trainer Wesley Ward, who uses Blake Heap to stable all of his horses on the West Coast and Ward owns this gelding, too. SKYLANDER (3-1) was flattered on Thursday when Tosheen won the last race on Thursday making it a key race.
EIGHTH RACE: 1. Ritzy Tags, 2. Oleanderpolarbear, 3. Back Street Cat. LONG SHOT: Big Wave Betty.
